I’ve discovered in the last 4 months that significant milestones bring about the opportunity for change. There were many things that we’d wait and “start in Hawaii” and then “when we got back to Idaho”. Somehow knowing we had that change of location coming up gave us the motivation to start new goals, ideas, or projects. I told Rachel that’s why I enjoy Airstream travel so much. We are constantly in flux and I just feel that my energy and motivation stay at an all time high. Its fabulous!
This year I’m working with an amazing group of women to head up the 365MileChallenge. Our goal is to get participants outside on 365 self propelled miles over the course of 2018. Sound impossible? It’s totally not. On average it takes a person only 20 minutes to walk a mile. Easily doable over a lunch break, or you can rack up miles in a weekend on a longer hike, paddle, snowshoes, or ski trip.
As outdoor bloggers and busy mothers, we’ve learned firsthand the benefits of spending time outdoors every single day. We know that there’s joy in just taking a few minutes every day to walk, run, cycle, snowshoe, or cross-country ski but sometimes we need a little nudge getting out the door.
If you want to know the truth…those precious minutes keep us sane.
We think that small distances done over a long period of time also have massive results. They create healthy habits and build self-discipline and the simple act of getting outdoors to move every single day is beneficial to the mind, body, and soul.
We’re also believers in the power of community.
We know that a supportive group of friends, even friends met online can make a huge difference in how motivated we are to accomplish a goal. And when you’re on a journey together it’s sometimes good to be rewarded.
Sound like a challenge you’d be interested in? We’d love to have you join us! Head over to 365MileChallenge.org to register and we’ll get you added to the private Facebook group where you’ll be encouraged by over 900 other members this year as we all complete our goals together!
